    Don't you just love it when the seller doesn't even open up the cabinet so you can see the machine?

    Holy Cow! You can read Westinghouse on that? I just see a dark blob with a red mark in the middle!

    Unfortunately a lot of people can't be bothered to take a pic that's useful

    Or look at the prices of things in their areas:

    can't hardly give away those Fashion Mate machines...
    nice treadle.
    That one in Milwaukee must be working some kind of scam...
    I just haven't figured out what scam...

    Miriam, you really know how to pick them. Thanks for the chuckles! When you search, do you ever look for "sowing", "tredle", "peddel" and other variations? I'm always surprised what I find.
